Russian agricultural watchdog allows tomato imports from five more Turkish companies

Russian agricultural watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor has allowed five more Turkish enterprises to supply tomatoes to Russia, starting February 1, 2018. The permission was granted under the guarantee of the Turkish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock. Rosselkhoznadzor experts had inspected the companies in December 2017.

Russia imposed a ban on imports of a number of farming products from Turkey from January 1, 2016 following the November 2015 international incident. In November 2017, Russia allowed imports of up to 50,000 tonnes of tomatoes from Turkey. So far only three Turkish suppliers have been granted permits to supply tomatoes to Russia.

"The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Control informs that from February 1, 2018, under the guarantees of Turkey’s Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock, allowed five more enterprises to import tomatoes of the Turkish origin into the territory of the Russian Federation," Tass.com reported.
